Literacy Love via Book Trailer Choice

Roanoke 5th grade is fully involved in book clubs and readers workshop.  Students' journals are teaming with reading responses and reading logs are filling up fast.

So, how do you continue this enthusiasm and encourage the motivation to read more? Let your students create their own book trailers! Choice was all over this project, from the selection of the book to showcase in the trailer to the digital tool to create the trailer, every part was student driven.

The Roanoke Language Arts Teachers provided examples, discussed with the students that elements that made a successful trailer, modeled how to plan out the process to create a trailer and provided a rubric that identified the content needed to show mastery of literacy skills.
Here are two exemplars from the the 5th grade students at Roanoke Elementary.

The Lion Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis- Book Trailer by Michael using Smore

Nothing's Fair in the Fifth Grade by Barthe DeClements- Book Trailer by Amanda using Animoto

These exemplars along with the other 5th grade students' Book Trailers, using a variety of tools beyond what was mentioned here, can be seen on the Standard Based Bulletin Boards at Roanoke Elementary until November 21st, 2014.  All are welcome to come by and see how choice promotes the love of literacy via Book Trailers.
